Santa Fe happenings

The Rail Runner Express makes it easy to speed between Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

A lot is happening in this southwestern art mecca in the coming months. 

  • For the first time, the renowned SOFA (Sculptural Objects & Functional Art) show comes to town June 11-14. The prestigious expo, also held in New York and Chicago, features wood, glass, ceramic, metal and fiber art. Eye-popping works by artists like Californian Latchezar Boyadjiev (whose Torso IV is at right) are on view. SOFA WEST is a real coup for the City Different.
  • Under construction since 2006, the New Mexico History Museum is finally set to open May 24. Among the presentations are displays on the state’s art communities.
  • In a show opening May 22, the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum features a selection of seldom-seen O’Keeffe works inspired by her travels outside the United States.

    The Fritz Scholder paintings at the IAIA Museum are especially interesting when one keeps in mind how much his work was influenced by the students at IAIA when he was there in the 60s.

    I love the work of Roxanne Swentzell and her daughter Rose Simpson (both Santa Clara Pueblo artists and graduates of IAIA. I’m also thrilled to offer, once again, a 6-day River Writing and Sculpting Journey featuring Roxanne Swentzell as my featured guest.
